Miami, as with many inner-cities, is looking for solutions to end youth gun violence. In efforts to support prevention initiatives, several Teaching Artists and students from The Motivational Edge produced Stop the Violence, a music video urging peers to put the guns down and be productive! The video was filmed in Miami at locations with high crime rates and youth violence, specifically Brownsville, Allapattah and Liberty City. (Credits: Video production by Fxrbes, music production by Desmond Chize Symonette and performed by Nicole Domany, Tarrell Newell, Ryan Everett and Rachel Pinchinat).
